, the president was asked about yesterday's possible chemical weapons attack in northern syria. mr. obama said last year that if the regime used such weapons, it would cross a red line of its own. >> i've instructed my teams to work closely with all other countries in the region and international organizations and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note, without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons. the broader point is, is that once we establish the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. >> warner: both leaders spoke extensively about iran and about the different timetables the countries are on for possible military action to prevent an iranian nuclear weapon. mr. obama
syria, and why the america has not been involved more in syria. >> obama: as is always the case when it comes to issues of war and peace the facts before you are important. it is incorrect for you to say we have done nothing. we have helped to mobilize the isolation of the assad regime internationally. we have supported and recognized the opposition. we have provided hundreds of millions of dollars in support for humanitarian aid. >> michael: and so you know, this is really the first time we've heard the president speaking directly about syria in such a way. what message is this sending eleanor? >> well, he took umbridge that the u.s. has done nothing and is forcefully listing everything that the u.s. has done. but in the context of what's going on over there it's the equivalent of nothing. i think he's been on the verge of doing something more. we've learned that hillary clinton and leon panetta both were pushing for more direct aid for opposition months ago. he has been resisting. it's a mess. how this plays out we may some day thank the president for not getting the u.s. involved,

in that particular meeting. but for the next two days, the talks between obama and the 10 yahoo will center on what are seen as shared fears, shared interest -- talk between obama fearstanyahu, on shared -- iran developing a nuclear weapon and a situation in syria which is seen very much as a threat to stability. these will be the issues that will dominate the discussion. is a the studio with me senior political analyst. mike was sending the main ground that these two leaders want to syria.ill be iran and there is a difference in opinion as to how imminent a threat iran and its nuclear program is. are they going to be able to find common ground here? >> yes, it is about how imminent in the threat, and even more important, how to deal with it. president obama insists it will be america that will call the shots on iran and not israel. that is a row, even if it has the right to act on its own defense security, it would be america that has its back -- israel, even if it has the right to act on its own defense security. it does it will be america who decides what goes on and how iran will be handled and

clear the chemical weapons were recently used in syria, but at the same time, the obama administration says, there is no evidence to support that there was a chemical attack. so you're talking about they're at odds on these other issues. they're at odds on syria as well it sounds like? >> i think we don't know enough facts about what happened. the assad regime claimed the opposition used chemical weapons. the opposition claimed the assad regime used them. our ambassador in syria, by the way is in washington, there was no chemical weapons attack at all. here is the bottom line for the united states. these weapons can not be allowed to exit syria. they can in the be allowed to get out of the country to fall into the happened of al qaeda or other terrorist groups to be used against the united states. melissa: what are the odds of that happening? >> i think they're high. i think the assad regime is in disarray. we can not have confidence. they continue it have command-and-control over those chemical weapons. it has been a goal of al qaeda for decades to get weapons of mass destruction and
to some alarming news in syria. reports of a chemical weapons attack in the country's second largest city. it confirmed this -- if confirmed it would be a real game changer and if it crosses president obama's red line and could impact of hundreds of millions of dollars of aid we give to syria. details are still coming in. the state department has not confirmed the allegation chemical weapons were used. we have the president and founder of the arican islamic forum for democracy. always nice to have you. let me ask you, how serious is this? how big of a deal is it? >> as we've been saying for almost two years now, no conflict has been worse in the world than what is going on in syria. assad's regime will stop at nothing. i have a family in aleppo. while they're safe there are millions of aleppo and all over syria are at risk. i think this may have been a trial balloon. we talk to some of our network physicians, we were skyping, a friend of mine was skyping at the hostile that received injured. it was clear that they had injuries with probably chemical related, pupils and broncho restriction
president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu hold a historic news conference in jerusalem. there are lots of conflicting reports today about a possible chemical weapons attack in syria and we are told that will be one of the top issues that we'll hear about right here in the next 50 minutes. and welcome to "america live," i'm megyn kelly. right now, president obama and the israeli prime minister are meeting behind closed doors. we expect to hear them both within the hour. the president's trip comes at a dangerous time for the jewish state and the entire region. to israel's west, questions about the muslim brotherhood and political stability in egypt. and to the east, syria, in the grips of an allout civil war and just 24 hours ago we received reports that chemical weapons may have been used against one side or the other. and of course, there is the constant threat from iran which president obama himself warned could be less than a f having a nuclear weapon. so as we await this historical-making news conference we want to check in with our own leland vittert live with the h
and the explosive situation in syria and the potential of the chemical weapons. quite frankly this region has become so much more dangerous since president obama became president and certainly he's there and all those issues will be on the table. i'm glad they're meeting, frankly. because i think he really needs to get this policy perspective and, the view of the israelis in view of what is around them and how volatile this region is and i hope they would be very frank with, with president obama as they american policy unstated, disengaging from this region. so my concern for the american people is the fact that this region is becoming to much more dangerous, much more volatile and the radical islamists are trying to acquire nuclear weapons. i agree with ambassador bolton. i'm absolutely convinced in my contacts with people inside the administration he, we do have an unstated policy of containment. jenna: on iran? >> do not intend to use military weapons against iran, yes, quite frankly. jenna: aaron, i would like you to weigh in on this as well as someone that advised both republican and democratic
. and then there's some serious issues, not only syria, but the reality is if barack obama doesn't want to be the american president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and on whose watch the two-state solution to the israeli-palestinian problem expires, he's going to have to find a way to work with netanyahu. and by the way, vice versa, because the prime minister bears a lot of responsibility for the soap opera that has been the u.s./israeli relationship. >> let's talk about iran and nuclear weapons. there's these stringent like terrible sanctions now placed on iran but that doesn't seem to be stopping the country from developing a nuclear weapon, so what can israel or the united states do now? i mean what will the -- if we could be a fly on the wall, what are they discussing as an option? >> look, i think the president is telling the prime minister that they have done about all they can on the sanctions side. now they're trying diplomacy. i think he's going to make a pitch to the prime minister. give me the time and the space to work with the p-5 plus 1 to see if we can work out
a little bit more about syria. and we heard both president obama and netanyahu reference the changing region. let me ask you about your -- your thoughts on arming the rebels. should we or what might happen to get us to that point. what do you imagine these conversations over syria are going to be like? >> this creeping incrementalism that we have engaged in over syria is for all intents and purposes is not going to really change the equation on the ground. we have so marginalized ourselves with respect to the events on the ground in syria. the rule and reason that the united states could comply is more or less dissipated. most are furious at the united states for not doing enough, depending on which side you talk to and which group you can wind up talking to. and so this debate, there's a dysfunction dysfunctionalty. almost an incomprehensible gulf between the debate here in the united states about arming the rebels and the fact that there are 70,000 people dead already, hundreds of thousands who are refugees, and most of the syrians who are sitting in those refugee camps will never g
alert. there's new information tonight about the suspect use of chemical weapons in syria. house intelligence committee share mike rogers saying there is a high probability to believe that chemical weapons were used, but as there's still no final verification. now, earlier today the obama administration saying it has no evidence of chemical weapons used in syria. former u.n. ambassador john bolton joins us. good evening, sir. >> glad to be with you. >> greta: why the confusion? i can see maybe confusion who used the chemical weapons, but why the uncertainty whether chemical weapons are used in syria? >> it depends on what the nature of the chemical weapon is. i'm not sure if we've got people on the ground who can do forensics. >> although chairman rogers, and indeed dianne feinstein chairman of the senate intelligence committee late today have gonna lot further than the white house has. so i think we need to get the facts straight, but it points in the direction of some chemical weapons used. was it the assad regime or the opposition? >> and this is a huge difference if it's chem
in syria said it will be helpful in bringing an end to the war. >>> president barack obama is scheduled to meet with israel's prime minister to focus on iran's nuclear program. as kyla campbell reports from the washington d.c. newsroom, talks from iran are stepping up the pursuit of nuclear weapons, kyla? >> reporter: little progress is expected on peace talks between israel and iran but president barack obama and bet washington nationals could come to -- bet -- prime minister benjamin netanyahu said president barack obama is taking the lead on how u.s. will respond to iran's threats and that's because the u.s. is israel's strongest ally and iran could have a nuclear weapon to use in the next few months and they believe it could not happen for another year which could form more peace talks. he wants to talk about peace. >> to speak directly to the people of israel and to neighbors... >> reporter: the president is meeting with israel and the two will hold a news conference. live in washington kyla campbell ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> the 15-year-old girl from pakistan who was shot i
-automatic weapons. meanwhile breaking news in syria. chemical weapons in the passive civil war. this as president obama is on his way to the region tonight on his first visit to israel and the west bank since he became president and as 55 people were killed and more than 200 wounded in battle scenes all over iraq on the 10th anniversary of shock and awe. i want to bring in at the start of this from cnn, life in iraq, arwa damon. another terrible day in baghdad. the anniversary of george bush's announcement that america was at war with iraq. 55 people killed. more than 200 wounded. very hard to see that there is anything but chronic instability and continued hideous bloodshed there. what is your take? >> it's such a tragedy really the way things have unfolded in iraq. just looking at iraqi faces, seeing how pale they had become. we are hearing after one attack after another. people's voices actually began trembling. this is violence that, first of all, the iraqis never even imagined would end up being the outcome of america's war in iraq. so many of them hoped and dreamed they would have true free
on the standoff. plus, president obama responds to syrian chemical weapons claims on his first state trip to israel. >> our alliance is eternal. it is forever. >> it's a region surrounded by threats and instability. in iran, in egypt. in syria. we have been clear that the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake. >> tonight, talk of red line, deadline and how to handle some nasty neighbors. colorado's prison. murdered in his home. >> it was a 911 call that came from the residence from the family member. >> shepard: this t. comes as the governor signs tough new gun control laws. tonight, a killing and a controversy. >> shepard: but first from fox this wednesday night, the president comes during tense times in a region that offensive dances on the brink of war. and it comes as iran works towards a nuclear weapon. and as we try to determine whether the government of syria has already deployed chemical weapons against its own people. because, in the words of our president, that would be a game changer. >> we have to make sure that we know exactly
minister netanyahu be asking of the united states in terms of ending the on flikt in syria? >> well, first of all, the president, president obama's, credibility is very, very critical. they is said from the white house podium that any use from the chemical weapons would be a red line. presumably this would be the trigger for more american involvement. as you know, craig, u.s. has been behind other allies, britain and france pressing on the u.s. to do more. we have done human. aid, nonlethal aid, helped to the combatance, but not what they have been pleading for. which is more weaponry. so there's a lot of pressure on the white house to become more involved in syria. this is skoesten shl because they have to wonder about what will follow the civil war. if assad is going to fall, will it be another vacuum like the vk um that has taken place, leading to huge securityish a us in egypt next door. egypt has a government. not entirely functioning government but it hasn't cancelled the historic peace treaty with israel. but security situation in egypt is collapsing all around it and that is the re
still, but there were options on the table. barack obama said in a recent interview that they would have time for that. >> what about the middle east peace process? is it on hold with the focus instead very much on iran and syria? >> one of the main topics of the press conference was a wrong, and it to yahoo made an interesting statement -- and netanyahu made an interesting statement about israel having the right to defend itself. barack obama says he is going tomorrow to talk with president abbas and that they were looking for steps to possibly get this peace process back on track. >> thank you so very much. government leaders in cyprus are in crisis talks as they scramble to hammer out a plan be to save the island nation from bankruptcy. in an earlier setback, the finance minister failed to reach progress after two rounds of talks in moscow and assistance from russia. >> the cabinet is also looking at ways to prevent iran on the banks and limit capital from the country following a failed bid to lead the private accounts. banks will remain closed on thursday and friday. we will be heari
in the end, jake. >> this trip as you know comes in the shadow of claims that syria is using chemical weapons against the rebels, claims that president obama just minutes ago noted were unconfirmed but he did also say that if they're true it would be a game changer. you had a chance to talk to israel's justice minister about this. what did she say? >> well, she said the u.s. involvement would make a difference in syria and she said chemical weapons in syria threaten israel and she's confident that they have been used in syria but she wouldn't say by whom. have you seen any evidence of proof that there has been chemical weapons used in syria? >> it is clear to us in israel that it's being used, and the problem is that while it's being used we have syria, we have hezbollah in lebanon, and the situation is that the appearance is it is not only going to be in syria but hezbollah can reach all these chemical weapons and use it against israel in the future. >> reporter: so obviously there is some daylight between what israeli officials are saying, there were chemical weapons used, and what the pres

lawmakers kicking it around and the u.s. embassador to syria said we don't know this as a fact yet. it needs to be investigated. the embassador echoed what president obama said. another key republican, mike rogers, the house intelligence chairman, was on cbs news this morning and said he thinks, it appears to him, chemical weapons were used but he's a former fbi official who wants to see forensic evidence. that's important for a republican lawmaker to underline saying we need evidence before we say chemical weapons were used. >> ed henry on a historic day in jerusalem. we look forward to your report tonight. >>> more about israeli u.s. relation from the director of center for strategic and middle east programs. man, people talk about these two men at adversaries and today they say there's not much daylight on iranian, the thanks and accolades and friendship and we're the best friends, it doesn't sound as if there's a problem. >> the optics are good. everybody wants this trip to be successful. there's a lot at stake for the president. a lot at stake for the israeli prime minister and they tal
